Yakima City Council Has Full Plate

The Yakima City Council will be swearing in its new council member tonight -- who will immediately be put to work.

Tom Dittmar will be sworn in after being selected from a pool of 13 candidates.

Shortly after, the council will hold a voting session for the new city mayor -- current mayor Micah Cawley is seeking a third term, while councilman Rick Ensey expressed interest in the position.

The council will also hold a hearing and possibly vote on whether marijuana will be allowed to be sold and grown within city limits.

The meeting will begin at 6:30 at Yakima City Hall.
